  • Don't let me plan your next excursion.

  • I apologize in advance. Please don't take the following personally if you're from Ocean Shores, WA or Hilo, HI.  But Hilo is the Ocean Shores of Hawaii. There, I said it. I said I'd never do it again. But I did. I made the drive to Hilo. I did however, make an exception since this was the first t[...]
  • new orleans.

  • I recently had the opportunity to visit New Orleans for the first time. As expected, the city was incredible and full of life. Which made it quite difficult for me not to photograph everything. Here are a few that I hope capture New Orleans' culture, music, people, architecture and colors. [...]
  • It's Aloha Friday everyday in Hawaii.

  • It's never easy to leave... Our visit to the Big Island was fantastic. Lots of pool time, fruity drinks and great food. Our good friends from Oahu also stopped by for a weekend visit.

And as luck would have it, Jack and Sophia (along with their cute British acce[...]

And what made it even better was meeting Athos, Sophia & Ariadne.  Even though I was running late (did I mention how big the park was?), the kids were great and ready to have some fun. [...]
  • And playing the "____ American Tourists"...

  • A fabulous time was had in London visiting our friends Jodi & Matt, and their two daughters. It's hard to believe they've been living abroad for nearly four years. Although we'd rather have them back as neighbors, it's sure fun visiting them. In addition to vacationing, I was also fortunate eno[...]
